That looks great!

I had started a 1/48 F-94 many years ago using an old T-33 for a start. I elected to build a B model since I like the looks of it better. These C models with the rocket bays in the nose never appealed to my senses......... Keep up the good work here and I'll try to find my references from 25 years ago, but I reckon what I have will be all related to the A or B models.

Revell ever had at 1/48 scale a kit of the F-94C. Must have been late fifties/early sixties.
It was re-issued in the late eightes in their Jubilee series.
Also Lindbergh had at this scale an F-94C.
Both were versions with the rocket launchers built in the wing's leading edge.
I must have both kits somewhere deeply hidden in my hobby room but I don't even know if they are complete!

Thanks :)) First set of rivets is there, next need to do, they will be complicated. Also find several problems with panels and some solved, some will in next turn. Simply, no accurate drawings :(
